Where does your ice come from?
It’s a good question.

These days, most of us care about where our products are from and how they’re made, especially when it comes to our food and our water. But if you think about it, we often don’t give a second thought to our ice.

But we believe ice matters. And you deserve transparency about it.

So Quari is proud to use the highest standards of water purification to produce only ultra pure, crystal clear ice. We further control our sourcing by exclusively producing in our Chicago-based state of the art facility, using all new equipment and tools.

How is Quari different from regular ice?

Of course, we believe high quality ice is the backbone to any great drink. After all, you
should taste only your drink – not the ice – whether it be a cocktail or an iced coffee.

Slow Melt

Quari melts very slowly, over the course of 2-3 hours, which means your drink stays colder longer, and is less watered down compared to regular ice.

Ultra Pure

Our water purification process ensures that you are tasting your drink, not the ice, and you can feel good about knowing our purity standards and how your ice is made.

Crystal Clear

Unlike regular ice or even ice molds, Quari offers you a crystal clear cube every time, due to our proprietary freezing process and our people who inspect every single cube for optimal clarity.

What people are saying about Quari

Ice is an ingredient; it has an effect on mouthfeel, dilution, presentation, and flavor. When choosing which to use, I get inspired by the malleability of the ice by Quari. Whether I simply place the cube or sphere in the glass, as is, or pick it down to a desired artisanal look, the ice is respondent. More than that, after speaking to Neil and Audrey, and finding that their mission is to promote inclusivity and diversity in the workplace, offering opportunities to those that don’t always receive them, I was moved. Quari satisfies more than my desire for great ice; it satisfies my heart and soul for a better, more progressive industry. Cheers.”

David Mor, Beverage Manager -- Cindy's Rooftop, Chicago Athletic Association Hotel


“Everything is great here. We love the ice, the cooler, packaging. I couldn’t be happier.”

Gregory P. Rice, Assistant General Manager & Beverage Director -- Forbidden Root

“Great quality ice, phenomenal service!”

Kirill K., Lead Bartender -- Smyth and the Loyalist

“The best ice in the world.”
